The Classroom is a short animation produced in 2010 by British GCSE Mandarin students (Year 11) at St Chad’s Catholic & Church of England High School, Runcorn, as part of the formal education programme “Projector Community Languages” of Cornerhouse, educational charity and art centre. This production enabled teenagers to learn Mandarin in a fun, interactive and engaging way, increase their understanding of Mandarin and Chinese culture through the use of film and practical creative workshops, and encouraged teachers to deliver more creative language sessions at school.

We are pleased to announce that, after a longer than expected period of evaluation, the finalists of the MEDEA Awards 2017 edition will be announced in the first half of March. The news will be announced with a press release, on our website and through our social media channels. All finalists will also be notified individually.
The MEDEA Awards Ceremony will not take place during the Media & Learning Conference in Brussels this year because with considerable regret we in the Media & Learning Association together with our partners in the Flemish Ministry of Education have decided to cancel this year’s Media & Learning Conference and Symposium due to unforeseen medical circumstances.
The finalists will instead be invited to take part in an online session, during which the winners of the MEDEA Awards 2017 will be announced. The date and link for participation in this session will be made available shortly. All MEDEA participants and interested people are invited to join.
In addition to this online session, the MEDEA 2017 finalists will also be invited to take part in the next edition of Media & Learning taking place in Brussels in 2018.
